"The Bad Seed"

Most of the American public has heard about unrepentant Weatherman terror bomber Bill Ayers, who finally discovered the pen is mightier than the sword and so worked with young, freshman Chicago politician Barack Obama to steer $150 million to their radical cronies via the Annenberg Challenge.
In March and April TV viewers were treated to a solid month of "God damn America" from Obama's pastor of 20 years, Jeremiah Wright.

Are these simply isolated incidences of Obama using poor judgment in choosing his allies?


Barack Obama is a "red diaper baby" who has spent his formative years -- literally from the moment of his birth -- exculsively interacting with members and sympathizers of the Communist Party, USA.
His mother Stanley Ann Dunham has been described by former classmates as a "fellow traveler." His grandfather Stanley Armour Dunham [carefully, gradually] arranged Obama's mentorship by Communist Party member Frank Marshall Davis.
Key details about Ann Dunham come from interviews in The Chicago Tribune, March 27, 2007 and the Seattle Times, April 8, 2008.

Done bouncing around Kansas, California and Texas in the years after World War Two, Stanley and Madelyn in 1955 picked up and left El Dorado, Kansas and relocated 2,000 miles away to Seattle. The next year they relocated to Mercer Island, Washington, specifically so their only daughter, Obama's future mother, Stanley Ann Dunham could attend Mercer Island high school.

"... parental traits that would mold [the child, Obama] -- a contrarian worldview, an initial rejection of organized religion, a questioning nature -- were already taking shape years earlier in the nomadic and sometimes tempestuous Dunham family, where the only child was a curious and precocious daughter of a father who wanted a boy so badly that he named her Stanley -- after himself."1. [emph.,LMC]
"I know, it's a boy's name, and no, I don't like it. I mean, would you like to be called Stanley?" [her friend] Johnson recalled her saying. "But my dad wanted a boy and he got me.
And the name 'Stanley' made him feel better, I guess."ibidObama's mother is quoted as saying.

What was special about Mercer Island High School?
The Chicago Tribune explains:
"In 1955, the chairman of the Mercer Island school board, John Stenhouse, testified before the House Un-American Activities Subcommittee that he had been a member of the Communist Party."
After intense debate, Stenhouse decided not to resign from the school board according to an April 11, 1955 account in Time Magazine. While others demanded Stenhouse's resignation, the Dunhams gravitated towards his school.

Stenhouse's leftism found an echo, [and supporters] on the faculty [and students].
The Seattle Times explains:
StanAnn Dunham gravitated toward an intellectual clique. According to former classmate Chip Wall, she [...] trekked to University District coffee shops like the Encore to talk about jazz, the value of learning from other cultures and the "very dull Eisenhower-ness of our parents."

"We were critiquing America in those days in the same way we are today: The press is dumbed down, education is dumbed down, people don't know anything about geography or the rest of the world," said Wall, who later taught at Mercer Island High and is now retired in Seattle.
"She was not a standard-issue girl. You don't start out life as a girl with a name like Stanley without some sense you are not ordinary."

Eisenhower helped re-shape the political geography of Europe. The parents of the late 1950s are those we now call "The Greatest Generation."
But years later Ann Dunham's ignorance and arrogance found an echo in Obama's book "Dreams From my Father" (p 47). Obama describes himself in Indonesia as:
"...extremely well mannered when compared to other American children. She (Ann Dunham) had taught me to disdain the blend of ignorance and arrogance that too often characterized Americans abroad." [emp. LMC]

Excellent article. You have information on Stanley Ann Dunham that I was unaware of, and I had tried to do some digging.

I personally believe that there is much about Obama's past (the parts that he put forward) are a fraud.

Also, I am beginning to see a big disconnect between what he says publicly concerning his programs, and what is actually discussed and put forth behind closed doors and put into effect.

This man is a complete danger, not just to America, but to the entire world.
